The Fort Worth community is invited to an open house hosted by the North Central Texas Council of Governments to discuss possible military installation land-use strategies.
The open house will take place from 6-8 p.m. Monday, July 10, at Westworth Village City Hall, located at 311 Burton Hill Road in Westworth Village and will include a Joining Forces presentation at 6:15 p.m.
According to a news release, Joining Forces is a regional joint land-use study used to identify and recommend land-use strategies that will continue to support military uses, installations and capabilities.
During the study, the surrounding cities and counties of the military installation work together to plan and “promote compatible community and economic growth.” Following the study, community actions are recommended, which can include zoning overlays, obstruction ordinances, comprehensive plan language and communication strategies.
In this case, the first installation of concerned is the Naval Air Station Fort Worth Joint Reserve Base which, of course, impacts Tarrant County and the city of Fort Worth.
According to the release, the study will also look at Redmond Taylor Army Heliport, Fort Wolters Training Center, Col. Stone Army Reserve Center, Camp Maxey Training Center, Eagle Mountain Lake Training Site and the Brownwood and Brady Military Operating Areas.
